Chris Garcia Fleeing to Los Angeles, Despite Our Protests

We were saddened to learn that local comedian and Cal creative writing alum Chris Garcia is departing for drier, tonier, potentially more fertile pastures (depending on whom you ask) — namely, his hometown of Los Angeles. He said as much in a triumphal email, followed by an even more triumphal Facebook status update. Asked to defend the decision, Garcia issued a semi-formal statement: “I’ve noticed a serious shortage of multi-talented, big-hearted, and brash snaggle-toothed Cubans represented in Hollywood, so I’m doing the Industry a favor and filling that void.”
